What began as a golf club in 2008 has expanded to a year-round resort that features a resort-style pool, a sports center and multiple onsite restaurants. Located about 10 minutes outside of downtown Bend, Oregon, and less than 10 minutes from Mount Bachelor Ski Village, this is an excellent resort for families looking to be close to everything.
The accommodations feature a ski chalet-feel and even feature mud rooms in the entry way so ski or mountain bike equipment has a place. Onsite, five-bedroom vacation rentals are also available and all guests can enjoy the many amenities that Tetherow Lodge offers.

Absolutely gorgeous hotel/grounds, and they were very proactive about the safety of their guests - maintaining snow-free pathways and plowing the parking lots daily. We also really enjoyed the customer service and food/drinks at the Row, as well as the athletic facility. However, the customer service at the front desk during check-in/check-out was very disappointing.
Welcome respite from downtown and close to Mt. Bacherlor. Fantastic accommodations and beautifully appointed master bath. Restauraunts are a local haunt for skiers coming back from a long day of skiing - I would stay here again and again.
The expansive, two-story fitness center features cardio and weight machines, plus an aerobic room with multiple fitness classes and an additional yoga studio. The large windows in the workout rooms offer amazing mountain views during your workout. Lockers, a steam room, sauna and the cafe can also be found here. Gym towels are provided. The Sport building is open from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The heated outdoor pool is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The resort-style pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas on the patio, which overlooks the mountains. Cabanas are also available to rent and there are two fire pits to be enjoyed at night. There are restrooms, lockers and a family changing area situated steps away from the pool; pool towels are provided.
The whole family can enjoy time at the onsite 18-hole, semi-private golf course. A Junior PGA Program is offered in the warmer months for kids, and there is a Golf Academy.
Ski, Bike, Hike
Mountain biking and hiking trails surround the lodge and Mount Bachelor Ski Village is located less than 10 minutes away.
This fine dining restaurant is located in the Club House and serves dinner only. Things like elk, seafood and vegetarian options are available here. Children are welcome here, but they will need to be on their best behavior. Solomon's opens at 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
The more family-friendly, casual option is The Row, also found in the Club House. The Row has a pub-vibe with flat-screen televisions and large windows overlooking the golf course. The Row is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Local craft beers are always on tap and there is a kids' menu available.
The Cafe is located in the Sport building and open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guests can find things like smoothies, sandwiches, salads and coffee drinks in the cafe. Grab and go options are also available here.
Planning & Tips

Free parking is available.
Some units welcome pets, so be sure to request a specific pet-friendly unit if you're bringing your four-legged family member.
The Art of Smart Timing
This lodge is a year-round vacation destination; however, it is busiest from about Memorial Day through to September and October.
The Bend-Redmond Municipal Airport is about 30 minutes away from this resort. Downtown Bend is situated about 10 minutes away and Mount Bachelor Ski Village is less than 10 minutes away.
Located among the mountains, a vehicle is needed if staying here. A shuttle service is available to take guests to downtown Bend at no additional cost or to the airport for an additional cost. The lodge itself is easily walkable and a stroller works well, as most of the walking areas are paved or have sidewalks.
For Mom and Dad
The Club House
Golf lovers and those seeking a great view can enjoy the Club House, which overlooks the gorgeous golf course and mountains. Grab a cocktail, sit in a cozy chair by the fireplace or enjoy the sun on the outdoor patio at The Club House. There is also a fire pit outside and the Pro Shop is located here.
